Gabrielle Union's stepchild Zion was praised earlier this year for openly marching in Miami Pride with his stepmom and family.

Zion, who has always been accepted and loved by their family on social media, was recently at the center of an internet troll's unsolicited comments, to which Gabrielle had the best response.


The actress and judge of America's Got Talent immediately responded when trolls came after Dwyane Wade, her husband, posting a photo referring to Zion as a "girl."

@dwyanewade on Instagram: “❤️❤️❤️ First picture @kaaviajames wants all the attention... 2nd picture her and Zion have a stare off for who’s gonna get the most…”


Union's response—full of love and class.

Thankfully people had already been quick to tell this troll to f*** off:





But when Union responded, people were even more thrilled.





Union's response shows nothing but love and it's a definite role model for how all parents in 2019 should be supporting their children.





When you're having 90s nostalgia and watching 10 Things I Hate About You or Bring It On and you see that iconic face, you best be stanning.

You are hard pressed to find a more supportive celebrity.

Gabrielle Union's book We're Going to Need More Wine: Stories That Are Funny, Complicated, and True is available here.

Fourteen fraternities at San Diego State University have been suspended after the tragic passing of a Freshman student.

Dylan Hernandez, 19, died on November 10, 2019, after attending a fraternity event, and the university believes that "possible misconduct" by the frat house is to blame.

As reported by the school's newspaper, The Daily Aztec, SDSU president Adela de la Torre confirmed Hernandez's death in an email that was sent out to the university community on Sunday.

De la Torre has also urged students to contact the University Police Department with any information they may have.

Fellow students told FOX 5 San Diego that Hernandez was "really out of it" when he returned to his dorm room on the sixth floor of the Tenochca Residence Hall on Wednesday night. They stated he may have "partied too much" at the fraternity event he attended.

SDSU Freshman Piper Grant told FOX 5 San Diego:

"He seemed fine, he was talking and everything. And then, they came in at 8 in the morning, and that's when it went downhill."

Other students told CNN said that Hernandez "fell out of his bunk bed" while asleep, and that he was foaming at the mouth by the morning.

A fundraiser in memory of Hernandez has been set up on GoFundMe.

Wrote the fundraiser's organizer, Carly Bernarndo:

"Dylan was an outgoing, light hearted and goofy person who had so much love to give to everyone he met."
"He never failed to make everyone in the room smile and his laugh was infectious... This is being created to raise money to help to create memorials for family and friends as a way to grieve, and remember Dylan for all the lives he was able to touch."

People on Twitter are commending the university's decision and hoping that it will lead to changes in college hazing and party culture.





The proceeds for Dylan Hernandez's GoFundMe will be used towards funeral and memorial services. You can donate here.
